Welcome to Quotidian Wisdom, a site dedicated to the discovery of beauty, inspiration and meaning in daily life.
I am happy to welcome you to this space for sharing our contemplative experiences.
I’ve always been on a journey to better myself. As a child I was driven to explore and discover my own nature. I was held back by severe emotional pain, and I limited myself greatly due to the belief that something was wrong with me.
It wasn’t until a severe crisis came on that I was forced to find a new way of life, one that focused on the truth of my own experience, above all else. The path led me to a new way of looking at life and a new set of tools. It turned all I knew on its head and obliterated most of my prior beliefs.
I set up Quotidian Wisdom because I felt I had to share the tools I’ve learned that lifted me out of a lifetime of anxiety and depression. I’m so convinced of their effectiveness because I’ve since discovered the science behind them and I’ve experienced their effect in my own life.
Quotidian Wisdom is about self-inquiry and intentional living, appreciating life’s joys and letting go of the things that block us from experiencing our higher selves. It has been my active daily practice since my crisis in 2012.
I have always been writer, but it has taken me nearly 20 years to discover what (for me) is worth writing about. I also know that my mission is to share my peculiar experiences.
Writing for this blog also dovetails perfectly with what has come before, which was working in public service and a decade dedicated to public health research and the study of the social determinants of health and wellbeing.
Currently, I live my life between California and Barcelona, in two cultures and two countries. I work in strategic communications, I have a husband and two adorable children who I love very much.
Every day I try to support my own life and its energy through intention, getting out into nature, cooking, dining, drinking wine, inviting people in, reading, playing with my kids, laughing, spending some time in study and hopefully remembering to take time to appreciate it all.
